This film directed by Jatrik group attempts to weave a different story. The story revolves around a novelist called Amal (Uttam Kumar) & his intertwinement with a truncated antisocial Nabendu, (Dilip Mukherjee) his death & its aftermaths. The film is all abut Uttam Kumar’s defiant onscreen performance. The film was released in the mid 1960’s & had unique background score by Bhupen Hazarika (watch out for the title track). The dialogues & screenplay were penned down by Prosanto Deb. The original story was written by Prafulla Roy. The film was Kala Mandir’s first presentation. Camera work was governed by Anil Gupta & editing was done by Ashok Ganguly. Apart from Uttam & Dilip Mukherjee, the film starred Aparna Dasgupta (Sen), Ratna Ghosal, Aparna Debi, Gangapada Basu (a stand out performance), Tarun Kumar, Jahar Roy, Gyanesh Mukherjee, & Kalyan Chatterjee. The film tries to narrate complex social issues in a lucid fashion but often scribbles the necessity of complexities. “Ekhane Pinjar” has technical loopholes especially in editing & art direction. Nevertheless it may be viewed to get a ‘different taste’ from the acclaimed group Jatrik.
